2030: How Today’s Biggest Trends Will Reshape the Future of Everything

University of Pennsylvania

Mauro F. Guillén is the Zandman Endowed Professor in International Management at the Wharton School (University of Pennsylvania). The recipient of numerous teaching awards, Professor Guillén is a former Guggenheim and Fulbright Fellow, an elected fellow of the Sociological Research Association, and co-chair of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Emerging Multinationals. He is the author of ten books, including his most recent: 2030: How Today’s Biggest Trends Will Collide and Reshape the Future of Everything.


Professor Mauro Guillén, a professor of international management at the Wharton School, examines recent economic shifts and technological advances in order to predict how the world might look a decade from now. Addressing contemporary crises such as climate change and economic inequality will require “lateral thinking” that approaches a problem from multiple angles and tests numerous solutions.  Agricultural advances might curtail hunger in Africa, where a rising middle class will impact worldwide consumer trends. He also examines how cryptocurrencies might sabotage the banking industry, predicts an uptick in wealth for Asian countries, and offers a carefully reasoned discussion of both the positive and negative potential repercussions of increased automation. A sharp, well-informed analysis of present-day trends and future outcomes provides valuable insights to investors, business owners, and policy makers, and almost everyone else!

Thought Provoking

Great ideas in here. Being from South Africa, I did not realize that by 2030 we would not even measure on the tables for a population above 60 years. This would mean we will have a very young population and with the right opportunities be able to make a great contribution on the economic scale for our future.
